Princeton Community Works launches online discussion series for area nonprofits

Princeton Community Works, an all-volunteer organization committed to serving the greater Mercer County area by providing nonprofits and volunteers with opportunities to connect, build skills, and raise awareness, is launching a series of online forums for the nonprofit community during the pandemic.

Goals of the nonprofit community conversations include: Bringing people together in a positive way, identifying ways to improve the community during this difficult time, and provide a safe space for sharing problems and brainstorming about how to deal with them.

“These one-hour conversations will provide an opportunity for individuals to share challenges, solutions and learn from each other,” said Marge Smith, the founder and chairwoman of Community Works. “It’s incredibly important that we all come together to help each other survive and thrive.”

Multiple sessions are being offered on different days and times so people can select a time that works best for them. All of the sessions are free.

The three topics offered:

“What is Working? What Challenges are you Facing? Share Solutions!” – Monday, Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 11 a.m., and Friday, Oct. 9 at 1 p.m.

“Creating Your New ‘Normal’” – Monday, Oct. 12, Wednesday, Oct. 14 and Friday, Oct.16 (Times TBD)

“Wellness: You Can’t Pour from an Empty Cup” – Monday, Oct. 26, Wednesday, Oct. 28 and Friday, Oct. 30 (Times TBD)

Registration is available on the Princeton Community Works website.

Organizers for the annual Princeton Community Works conference are also planning a virtual conference for January of 2021.

“We hope that the conversations in the fall will help inform us in determining the programming to offer at the conference,” Smith said.
